Highlights and tour details

The seventh stage leaves San Michele di Prazzo to reach the villages of Vallone and Ussolo. You resume walking along pastures and sparse larch woods, uphill to the ruins of the Albeno granges, just below the homonymous Punta (1796 m). A little further on a spectacular and picturesque view opens over the wooded slopes of Rocca Corna and on the steep slopes that precipitate down to the valley bottom. The hillside cuts through high mountain pastures that start to bloom with rhododendrons, gentians, anemones, orchids and violets at the beginning of the summer. Long stretches of moderate descent allow you to reach the track that connects the village of Ussolo to the high pastures. If you want to take advantage of a break, you lose height difference towards the village of Ussolo, along a clearly visible path among dry stone walls and mixed deciduous woods.
